Of the international attractions that have been green-lit, I’m looking forward especially to this one (as well as the new rides at Fantasy Springs in Tokyo DisneySea).

Is the topped-out feature above that orange circular building at right? If so, there appeared to be much taller structural features to this land and attraction (even considering the rearmost 'towers' will be painted flats like EPCOT Ratatouille).

Somewhat disconcerting to hold a topping-out ceremony for a low-rise building. We need a pic of the Model.

The topping-out ceremony is referencing the main attraction building. The rest is non-load-bearing superficial additions, possibly smaller adjoining buildings/shops with mostly rear projection "windows", and a cityscape that definitely looks like scenic flats. The detail on the concept art is impressive but it's what you don't see that's most revealing. Almost looks like a closed off set or cul-de-sac.

Compare the concept art to say this image:

And you REALLY start to wonder!

^What has me scratching my head is why would they hold a topping out ceremony for a structure that is going to be 2-3x taller (according to the art). It would be like Star Wars Land having a topping out ceremony when the roof of the 40ft showbuilding was completed as opposed to when they put up the tallest steel - the 135ft rock spire. They should call it a "Construction Milestone" ceremony vs. "Topping Out" because the latter makes one think that's the highest point, which I certainly hope is not the case.

Remember this is a Chapek era project... the attraction on the inside might be great however all signs point to the outside looking terrible.
